Last Night’s Reading

I’m so excited to have my writer-mug drawn up and framed by the awesome Kate Galvino. If you haven’t checked out this blog, it’s full of amazing caricatures and quotes by writers from readings happening all around New York. The line below is from my novel-in-progress, Miracle Steak. You can buy the image here.


“Ten Brooklyn Writers and How They Write”


I was recently included in Brooklyn Magazine’s literary supplement alongside some of Brooklyn’s emerging (and well-established) literary mainstays. Click here to read a little about my writing process.

I’m really excited to be reading as part of The Franklin Park Reading Series on Monday, December 9! I’ll be reading from Miracle Steak, my novel-in-progress, alongside 2013 National Book Foundation & National Book Awards nominee Tom Drury (Pacific), Okey Ndibe (Foreign Gods, Inc.), Heiko Julien (I Am Ready to Die a Violent Death), and Sean H. Doyle (The Day Walt Disney Died). Please join me that night for stories and a good ole fashioned post-reading hang.

Coverage of Whatever Used to Grow Around Here

“The sentences seem to move with a sort of poetic effluency that is enviable.”-Chamber Four.

One of “5 Breakout Book People


“I think I underlined every sentence in my copy of this lovely little book.”- Henry Stewart, The L Magazine

“Lauren Belski lovingly charts the unmapped and ever-shifting borderland between adolescence and adulthood in contemporary America.”-Small Press Reviews

“How a Coney Island Fortune Teller Got Lauren Belski’s Book Published”

“First, she said ‘take off your sunglasses!,’ which I did. She said ‘you’re a writer,’ and I was thinking, ‘I’m here in my bathing suit, I don’t really know how you could tell,’ but I said, ‘yeah.’ She told me I’d finished something, and I said, ‘yeah,’ and she told me ‘two dollars and I’ll say more.’ I gave her two more dollars since I was interested. She said, ‘listen to me, you have to be pushy, can you be pushy?’ ‘I think so,’ I said.” (Read the rest here.)

“How a Small New York Press is Trying to Reinvent Publishing”

“The reason we decided to do handmade books, sewing them instead of having them stapled, is because we wanted to make durable books that would be precious.” (Read the rest here.)
